There are many different drug rehab locations. However, it can still be an overwhelming task to choose the right one. Not all centers are the same. It is important to match the services of the facility with the needs of the patient.

Make a list of important points to consider. For example, do you want a facility that treats a variety of addictions such as alcohol, marijuana, cocaine and other substance abuse? A rehabilitation center such as the Arlington County Alcohol and Drug Program in Arlington, VA may be right for you. If faith is a strong component in your life you might choose a program with a religious affiliation. There are even programs designed specifically for women. One such center is the Bethany Hall Recovery Home for Chemically Dependent Women in Roanoke, VA. Perhaps a facility that specializes in one particular addiction might be better suited to work with your specific needs.

Make sure the facility treats your addiction and circumstance. Not all additions are the same. There is a difference between the out of control marijuana smoking college student and the fifty year old that has been using pot for thirty five years on a daily basis.

Many outpatient rehab Prescott AZ professionals agree there is no "best" treatment plan. Although there are similarities with all addictive behavior, the needs of the cocaine addict may be different from the alcoholic. Professionals do agree when an addict's individual needs are paired up with a treatment suited to address those problems, there is a better chance for success. Treatments vary depending on the extent of the addiction. In some cases inpatient hospitalization is necessary. Other cases may only require outpatient programs.

Below is a list of common outpatient rehab Prescott AZ treatment plans:

o Inpatient hospitalization o Outpatient hospitalization o Support groups o Counseling o Halfway houses o 12-step

If the addiction has been a long term problem, an inpatient hospitalization program may be recommended. There are several benefits to this type of program. The detox and rehabilitation process will be monitored by professionals and there is 24-hour support. Another important component to an inpatient program is the fact that the environment for the addict is changed. This allows the patient to focus on recovery and learning the skills needed to lead a clean and sober lifestyle.

Most of the professionals generally advise this treatment program because the patient receives treatment round the clock with these medical professionals. The length of the program is not more than seventy days but it can be extended further as it totally depends upon the level of advancement of addiction. In this treatment, these professionals also give various therapies and counseling that aims to get rid of this life threatening disease completely from the mind and body. Whereas, outpatient programs are beneficial for those addicts who are suffering from any mild addiction or cannot stay in the treatment center for any reason like they have to see their small children in their home. In this mode of treatment program, these addicts have to visit the treatment center very often in order to get proper treatment. An outpatient treatment program is given to those patients who have gone through the long process of treatment earlier. Usually, this treatment program is less effective than an inpatient treatment program because addicts have to deal with various social problems while going for healing. Thus, for the purpose of achieving the best programs and selection of drug rehab centers, always keep the above mentioned thing in mind.

With careful consideration of both the addict's needs and the drug rehab programs available, a suitable match is sure to be found.
